Even though it’s been a few days since President Obama and Vice President Biden renewed their oath of office on Inauguration Day, my first grader is still talking about the political process. Fortunately, the folks at Disney Publishing recently launched a new kid friendly iPad and iPhone app which is based on the award-winning educational DVD series “The American Presidents” from Disney Educational Productions.
The Disney American Presidents: Unofficial Oval Office Scrapbook is an educational and especially fun app full of trivia and historical facts about our American Presidents. The app was developed with the help of a producer from The Daily Show and Colbert Report. From George Washington to Barack Obama, this app brings each historical time period to life with an interactive scrapbook, cartoons and animations, music, videos, art and more. I especially liked the background music!
There are even some real-life testimonials from folks like Mo Rocca, Bob Woodward, Sam Donaldson, and others. It’s super easy to navigate and offers up some really interesting facts. For instance, do you know which president got stuck in a White House bathtub? Download the app for $3.99 and find out!
